Sounds like your coils may blocked with ice, preventing airflow to the fridge section. This can be caused by two things. The defrost timer isn't working; a bad timer or timer motor. Or, the defrost heater has burned out. A few checks with a volt/ohmmeter should narrow it down. The timer &timer motor are generally reasonably accessable in the back. The defrost heater is another story. You'll probably have to take some of the freezer panels off to get at it. The parts aren't that expensive but, if you can't do it yourself, labor might be pricey. With new fridges running $800 to $1000+ , if yours isn't too old it would be wise to fix it. good luck, John

You might check this link for details that are similar to your fridge issue. Likely you do not have cold air fanning to the bottom compartment hence not cool. I assume your seals work properly and that it is a fridge internal issue.

Your frig has the classic symptoms of a frig with a clogged or blocked vent between the
freezer section and the refrigerated section. This clog can occur due to (a) stuff in the freezer blocking the vent, or (b) ice in the freezer blocking the vent, or (c) both of the above.

The way a refrigerator works is it cools the freezer, and the warmest air in the freezer is vented out
to the refrigerator section. If this vent is blocked (and everything else is working), your refrigerator
just became a eye-level small freezer atop a well-insulated section of dangerously warm food.

The vent from the freezer to the fridge can be blocked with frost and is preventing the flow of cool air to the fridge.
This can happen if there is frost build up due to failure of the auto defrost timer.
So please check on the fan section , remove panel and see if there is frost or block, if so check the timer Heater and the thermostat.

So you manually defrosted your refrigerator and now the fresh food section is warmer than normal. Can you please send me the model number and your location in the world. Some models are totally impossible. I found related models but no parts listings yet. Could you have someone feel the compressor top to see if warm, cool or too hot to keep hand there. Sea Breeze

When the fridge is not cooling that means the fan are not working or not working properly, need to replace or check if their is an ice bothering the fan to turn. ok

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working


Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
